Final 3 HoH Part 1 - Endurance Comp Coverage
As soon as the feeds come back on, the Endurance Comp Coverage will begin within this post... It usually takes a few minutes, then we're rockin' and rolllin' right along.
As well as the updates and caps here on the main site, BBDishCaps will be posting screen caps all night as well...
Tonight the Final 3 show us what they're worth!
7:26pm BBT Feeds are back and everyone's still in it!!!
Jordan: I was sooo nervous you were gonna vote me out.
Natalie: B-tch said.. Kevin tried to be nice and say, put a dress on, so you look fabulous on live tv." B-tch said, I look fabulous already.
Natalie says Julie asked her about her loyalties...
The log continues rolling... No water at the moment. Jordan wonders if they're going to increase the speed... Everyone looks to be in fine shape right now...
Jordan's holding her key from the top, usually.. She's alternating hands quite a lot...
Jordan: Doesn't it feel weird, lookin up?
Natalie: At least we wont all be throwing up on this one.
Cue the leaf blower...
7:35pm BBT - They continue on in silence while the leaves blow and the rain falls..
7:35pm BBT - They continue on in silence while the leaves blow and the rain falls..
At the outset, due exclusively to his height, this comp looks geared to Kevin, but Jordan and Natalie are holding up just fine, so far.
Natalie: How're you doing, Jordo?
Natalie: How bout you, Kevo?
Kevin: Good! Cuz sooooo am I!
Jordan suggests they sing 1000 bottles of beer on the wall... BB nixes that.
Taking a closer look, Natalie's got something on her head, but there's no brim, so her eyes are not protected from the rain fall.
Natalie: At least Michele will get to spend time alone with Jeff... She's been so jealous of you this whole game..
Jordan: You're such an instigator.
Natalie: It's the truth.. She's been so jealous of you. She's like, Jordan doesn't even have to try and Jeff likes her. I try hard, and he doesn't like me...
Jordan changes the subject. Natalie goes right back to Michele bashing...
Natalie: She is so lucky that I didn't get the chance to replace you, and only Kev in got to speak...
Natalie: I'm getting hungry. Some pizza sounds good. Just one large would be enough for us.
Jordan: Yeah, pizza does sound good.
BB Suddenly stops the log moving...
Natalie: Good one, Big Brother. Good one. It almost got me.
Down comes the rain... (bugs please).. Even some lightening for effect. Natalie's standing there, head down and silent.
Jordan: Oh, I don't like this!
Kevin: Please tell me it broke.
Jordan: When is it gonna start.
Kevin: Like it's trying to move, but it's stuck.
Natalie: They're doing that, Kevin.. Trust me. It aint broken.
The log still isn't moving...
7:48pm BBT - The log begins moving in the opposite direction, so they all have to walk backwads now...
Jordan: I don't like this way.
Natalie: You'll get used to it, just like you got used to the other way.
Jordan: Are we allowed to turn to the side, or no?
Natalie: You can't face the back. You have to face the forward.
Seconds after Jordan asks, Natalie begins sidewalking...
Down comes the rain... They are all completely drenched... and all still in it!
Each has developed their own way of walking on the log... then it comes to a complete stop again.
Natalie: I kinda like that way.
Jordan: I hate that way.
7:54pm BBT - Cue the leaf blower... Jordan's got both hands on her key, holding tight as the log begins rolling again... This time they walk forward. Natalie's futzing with her clothing, holding her key with one hand, then grasping with both as the wind and the leaves increase in intensity... Kevin's got both hands up at an equal spot on the key...
The leaves, wind and rain let up. The log continues rolling... They've been at it an hour now. The log picks up speed. Natalie sneezes repeatedly. Jordan blesses her each time...
Kevin: When is it gonna be summer?
Natalie: I know, right? Spring even!
Natalie: How long do you think it's been?
Kevin: 30 minutes maybe?
Jordan: I think longer than 30 minutes.. maybe 45. Excuse me.
Natalie: For what?
Jordan: I burped.
Natalie: I thought you were gonna say, I'm gonna fall, excuse me.
Jordan: Oh, no. What's next, snow?
Natalie: Snow's next.
**Bugs, I tell you. Big flying bugs.
Natalie: I remember watching this on tv and being like, why are those people falling? It's so easy. I could do that.
8:02pm BBT - Sneezes and bless yous all around. Cue the rain. lol.
Everyone's enduring in silence for the moment... Natalie's sniffling and shaking out her hand. She looks right, trying to catch someone's eye... then shakes out and stretches her other hand. Then a few wipes glove to nose... and she resumes her death grip on the key above her head, as the log stops rolling again. Time for another direction change.
Natalie jeeps looking to see how the others are doing, or to make eye contact... Cue the water and the wind and leaves...
Natalie: What the hell is that?
Jordan and Kevin continue on in stoic silence.
8:10pm BBT The rain stops... There's anew generator noise...
Kevin: What the hell is that?
Natalie: Is that f'in snow? That's ice! Sh-t. That ice is f'in ice.
8:11pm BBT - It's snowing in the backyard of the BB House. LOL!!! Way to go, Mike O. It's not bugs, but I'll take it.
The log has stopped momentarily, but the snow and wind are blowing up a blizzard... That should feel particularly nice on their drenched bodies right about now.
The log resumes moving...
Snow machine off.
Kevin: Winter sucks.
Natalie: What the hell was that white stuff?
Natalie: That's what it's supposed to be, but what is it really?
Jordan: Shaving cream? I don't know.
**Bummer, not real snow. lol.
Kevin: omg, is it summer?
Natalie: It's never gonna be summer. Summer's what we've had.
Kevin: What's that bright light?
Natalie: I don't feel any heat... This is easier than graduation day...
Kevin: I know!!
Natalie: Obviously, graduation day, i fell early. That vomiting one made me sick.
Just the log rolling, for the moment... Natalie shakes out her hands again, to get the blood flowing. She watches her feet as she walks.
Kevin: Getting a little tricky, dicky aren't you?
***Another direction change for the log. The HGs are walking backwards again.
8:20pm BBT - Cue the wind and rain... and ultimately the snow as well. Jordan looks as though she's about to lose her footing, then she rights herself.. Natalie's footing isn't looking too fabulous either, to the point where it looks like she's about to stage her demise. Kevin appears quite solid.
8:22pm - Natalie's feet are all over the place. Kevin's using long, even strides. Jordan's getting into a rhythm, then holding on for dear life...
8:23pm BT - The roll of the log keeps changing direction.
8:24pm BBT BB lets up on the wind, rain and snow.. Heavy breathing is heard throughout. No smack talk.. Jordan looks determined. Kevin looks pained, but focused.
Mike O: Hey guys, hold on to your keys. If I could have you just flick your mics. I wont start it while you're flicking your mics.
Walking forward. Jordan shakes out her hands and arms...
Natalie: Dude, if Russell and Jeff were here, we would've had no chance.
Jordan: Oh, I know. I woudl've just dropped when it started.
Kevin: Good job, girls.
Natalie: Hang tight.
8:29pm BBT - More rain... Walking backwards now... Kevin's footing is becoming less sure. We hear an "oh sh-t" from Natalie... Everyone's still in it. Now forwards...
***I'm really pleased BB leveled the playing field by giving them all gloves.
8:33pm BBT and we can hear something changing gears... Jordan smiles at the new challenge. The log is changing directions a few times before it settles on a direction.
Jordan: (smiling) Oh, my goodness.
The log speeds up. They're walking forwards now... lots of stops and starts. Lot's of wobbles and smiles from Jordan.
Kevin: Please tell me it broke.
Natalie: Kevin, it's unbreakable.
New groaning noise.
Natalie: What the hell is that?! I don't get what the light is.
Jordan: Lightening, maybe.
Natalie looks at her competitors, then forward, with a smug or confident look on her face.
Natalie: Something's gonna happen.
She wiggles her fingers atop her key. Cue the rainstorm... Mercifully, no log movement for the moment. Just chilly HGs standing drenched in the rain.
8:40pm BBT - The log starts back up and catches Jordan off guard. All of them, actually... Stops and starts.. Changing directions.. We can see all their feet on cam 1.
Kevin: That was some COLD rain!
The log switcheroos continue.. Stay focused on the task, or you're going for a tumble.
Backward walking resumes... and the speed increases dramatically, then stops.. Then fast again.
Natalie's almost lost it a couple times now.
The log stops for a few seconds, then spurts back to life, in hopes of surprising them. They're all over it now.. Again, Natalie takes a step nearly half way down the front of the log, then catches herself...
At the moment... The log is forcing them to walk backwards at a pretty fast pace. Natalie's the only one who looks erratic in her movements.
- Kevin's on Cams 1 &3
- Natalie's on 2
- Jordan's on 4
8:48pm BBT - We're just shy of the 2 hour mark. Bravo, HGs. I knew you had it in you.
Kevin's even and calm. Jordan's comfortably walking with one hand on her key, one hand off. Natalie's got a death grip on her key, and her body's all over the place.
8:51pm - Trivia... Likely Mike O telling them congrats, you've just hit 2 hours, and whatever else he's got to say...
Jordan's still alternating hands, and walking one handed, while the rain is coming down at it's hardest and the log is rolling... Her face appears focused and determined.
Natalie: I almost fell. Did you see me? That was a close one.
Jordan unzips her jacket and almost loses her grip. She takes her hoodie off her head... The log stops...
8:58pm BBT - Trivia, briefly.
9:01pm BBT - Everyone's still in it! Way to go, HGs!!
9:04pm BBT - The log isn't moving, but the wind and the snow are blowing... Natalie's one handing it at the moment, streatching out her alternate hand. Kevin looks relaxed and comfortable in his position. Natalie smiles actoss at one of them... considering her position on the far right, with Jordan in the middle and Kevin at the left, she could be looking at either one. Jordan has put her hoodi back in place on her head. Her smile is gone.
The snow and wind are relentless...
Natalie: Alright, I think that's enough...
Natalie: I think that's enough. I think it's enough...
9:08pm BBT Mike O. agrees and lets up on the snow and the wind. They stand there in peace for a moment...
Natalie: How're you guys doin'?
Kevin: Doin' good.
Jordan is non responsive.
Natalie: Like twice, I almost ate it.
Kevin: This is what we signed up for. This is the dream.
Natalie: Who wants some mentos?
Jordan: For real?
Nat stashed some candy in her jacket... She shares with the others.
Natalie: This is the worst part. Just standing here. I like moving around. It keeps the blood circulating. Can we start the log? I'm getting cold standing here. I need the blood to circulate.
Jordan shakes out her hand... chews on her mentos...
Natalie: I think they're planning something big.
Kevin: Like what?
Natalie: I don't know.
Kevin: Throw rocks at us next?
Natalie: Dude, we had hail. Dude, did you just bust out a power bar?
Jordan: Oh, my God. Are you serious?
Kevin: Do you want some?
Natalie: Yeah, pass it over.
Jordan passes it. Kevin offers her some...
Natalie: Don't take your hand off Jordan. Jordan, just pass it on. The mentos are better.
Kevin: I'm gonna be here all f'in night.
Natalie: SO am I. I think we all are. We've done this... Jordan, are you dropping any time soon?
Jordan: No, not unless I take a fall.
Natalie: Be careful, cuz they're gonna start this thing outta nowhere... You guys could just fall. You could compete tomorrow. Kevin? I'm not gonn go nowhere.
Kevin: This is mine, Wench.
Natalie: WHat'd he say?
Jordan: This is mine.
9:17pm BBT - Cue the driving rain and lightening effect...
Kevin: Ummm, can I get some warm rain on this side? This is cold!
Natalie: Dude, someone just chugged ice at me.
Kevin: That was me.
Natalie: This could be over quick. People just need to start fallin.. and it aint gonna be me.
Cue the wind machine and the blowing leaves...
Jordan: Oh great. Now we're gonna freeze.
Jordan: I'm scared I'm gonna fall.
Natalie: Me too. Hold tight, girl.
Natalie says something that makes Jordan smile... She looks as though she's considering something...
Natalie: Why can't the blow money at us?
Kevin: That would be cool. BLow money at us.
Natalie: Let's see who wants em. Who wants to take their hand off the key for hundreds.
Jordan: How long do you think now?
Natalie: An hour and a half. Season 8, when they did this, they were up here for 9 hours.
Jordan: 9?!? I thought you said 4.
Natalie: No, graduation day was 4.
9:27pm BBT - The log is motionless for the moment... Kevin takes the opportunity to go one handed and wiggle his fingers a bit. Jordan shakes out her right hand, then her left... Natalie's holding on with her right...
9:28pm BBT - Cue the water, hail, wind and lightening... The log resumes, and the HGs are now all walking backwards again.
Despite a few grimaces, everyone's moving quite fine... The log stops, then starts again... Stops and starts.. direction changes are the rule of this section... I'm watching all their feet on cam 1, and they've all become pros... This goes on for 3 minutes. Then the log stops...
Quick stop, then a start.
All are standing, silently poised for the next jolt... A minute passes with no new jolts and Natalie and Jordan both start shaking out their hands. Surprise! New jolt, new direction. Then stops again.
9:36pm BBT - All still in it!!! Ladies and gentlemen, we have an endurance comp. ;) Looks of determination rule the log. They are sure-footed, eyes on the prize...
9:41pm BBT - All braced for the worst and hoping for the best..
Stillll goin'. The log's back to stops and starts. Natalie's stumbled twice, but regained her footing. Kevin's even looking a bit troubled. Jordan's rollin' with the flow.
After a couple minutes of it, they've all found their rhythm, so the person at the controls speeds up the stops and starts. Heavy breathing can be heard...
The log stops. Natalie looks over at one of them questioningly, catches the eye she wants and breaks into a big grin. Stops and starts resume.... in little bursts... Natalie is braced, one leg in front of the other, ready for anything they throw at her.
Kevin has turned to the side. Jordan's face front.
9:52pm BBT - Welcome to the 3 hour mark!! Well done, HGs!!
9:53pm BBT - Still with the stops and starts. Kevin has now taken on the same one leg forward stance as Natalie. The log resumes its roll, now forcing a backwards walk...
Natalie becomes a bit less sure footed, stumbles and recovers... The Key they're holding on to is helping them more than anything...
Forward. Backward. Stop!
Cue the rain... Movement has stopped for the moment...
Natalie: You guys ready to drop yet? It's been about 2 hours. You've got nothing to be ashamed of.
Kevin: I'm going til the sun rises, wench.
Natalie: I'm going longer than that. If you can only go til the sun rises, you might as well drop.
Kevin: I'll drop when the sun rises, then.
Natalie: But it'll be all for nothing.
Natalie: How're you doin, Jordan?
Jordan: Fine. I almost fell.
Natalie: I think we all have, almost.
Natalie: Honey, I know you're watching me. I love you, and I miss you.
10:02pm BBT - More blinding rain. They're holding on as if 500,000 dollars were riding on this comp... ;) As it should be!
10:06pm BBT - More wind blowing leaves all over the place... Natalie and Kevin maintain their braced stances. Jordan's still 2 feet close and forward...
10:10pm BBT - They add a bit more rain into the mix... and lightening for the tv folks, cuz it's a nice visual.
10:11pm BBT - Stops and starts resume with the log... Rain and wind are still coming...
10:12pm BBT - The rain and wind subside, and there's a new groaning noise... Sounds like some new torture is coming...
10:14pm BBT - The HGs are silent, but Stilll going!
10:17pm BBT - Standing still, Natalie resumes her talking game, trying to psych people down... She tells Kevin he's blue, etc... For the most part, Natalie's the only one intersted in talking.
10:21pm BBT - Kevin has his back turned to both of them. Jordan's responsive to be polite.
10:23pm BBT - More rain... The camera goes close on Kevin's face, and he does look cold. It flips to Jordan, who looks more annoyed than anything... Thank goodness no one wore a white tshirt, or this would be another kind of comp altogether.
10:25pm BBT - The log remains motionless, as the rain pours down on the HGs... for now.
10:27pm BBT - Nat lets out a little shiver. The logs resumes rolling.
Kevin: You ok, Jordan?
Natalie: (big smile) You ok, honey?
Natalie: Get some towels on you.
Kevin: It's down to you n me, wench.
Kevin takes out his protein bar for a bite.
Natalie: Please start the thing on his ass, now. This cocky, mothersucker.
Kevin: All night, b-tch. All night.
Natalie: I can go all night too.
**or at least another few minutes to make Jordan think we don't have a deal.
Kevin: There better not be pizza in there... Why are they opening it up?
natalie: To let her go get warm. Go ahead, Jordan. Go warm up.
Jordan heads inside...
Natalie: She went in.
Kevin: Cinco minutos mas?
Natalie: 5 minutes? You swear on your life?
Kevin: I swear on everything I know.
Natalie: Tomorrow's a crap shoot... .
Kevin: Phase 3 is a crap shoot.
Natalie: Give it 15 minutes...
Kevin: Why are we shivering for nothing. B-tch can't win anything.
Natalie: I'm not. I'm warm as a bunny. You better realize what I'm doing.
Kevin: I know...
Natalie: You cannot beat me at this. If you burn me, dude. THis is mine to win. This is huge what I'm doing for you.
Kevin: I know...
They bicker back and forth about proving their loyalties to each other.
Kevin: B-tch, don't make me come over and karate chop you.
Natalie: I love how you say you can do it all night, but you only want 1o minutes... America, you heard it. He said he's taking me to the end.
Kevin: I would've kept Michele, if I intended to screw you. (paraphrasing)
Natalie: I would've beat michele... We need to do it before she comes back out...
Kevin: You need to do what you did in S'Mores...
Natalie: Throw my cup that way... We're almost there, Kevin... Almost there. ALl I gotta do is beat her tomorrow.
Kevin: And then we're done.
Natalie: And you know they're gonna try to get in your head.
Kevin: They already tried...
Meanwhile, Jordan's in the shower...
Kevin: Dude, if this works, it's like, every single mission has worked.
Natalie: Operation delete the middle row was a success today.
10:40pm BBT, cont'd...
Kevin: How long do you think we've been up here?
Natalie: Probbaly like 2 hours. Dude, Jeff, or Russell? If they were here...
Kevin: Uh huh. I mean, honestly, I've probably got another 2 hours in me.
Natalie: That's it?! I could go longer than 2 hours.
Kevin: I probably could too, if I knew it was like...
10:41pm BBT - Jordan's finishing up in the shower.
Natalie: Hey, do I go now, before she comes back out?
Cue the wind and the snow...
Natalie: Kevin... Kevin... Kevin...
Natalie: Sounds like hail!!
10:44pm BBT Trivia...
10:48pm BBT - Feeds are back and Natalie & Kevin are still up there! The log is rolling and the wind is blowing...
Kevin: (almost takes a spill) Nooo!!
It's been over 20 minutes since Jordan fell off now. Either their time perception is off (which we know), or they trust each other aboout as much as they should.
10:51pm BBT Jordan returns, freshly showered and dry.
Natalie: How're you feeling?
Cue the rain! The log stops rolling for a moment, then starts up, then stops... starts... The log and the rain both stop. Jordan goes inside.
Natalie drops. Kevin has won the 1st leg of the Final 3 HoH.
Round 2 is Thursday on the Live Show.
Kevin: Yes! Big Brother, wait. Don't move the log.
Natalie: Jump off. Don't be a pansy. What're you doing? Jump off.
Natalie and Kevin come inside. They're amazed to hear they were up there 4 hours. Chatter about the comp, how much longer they could've lasted... and pizza. Natalie strips down in the living room, to get the cold wet everything off her... Chatter between Nat and Jordan.
Thank you for being a part of BBDish for the Endurance Comp Coverage and the Big Brother 11 Season! :)
